Natural Disasters, Manmade Catastrophes, and the Future of Human SurvivalBook - 2010 | 1st St. Martin's Griffin ed.
Tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, pandemics, cosmic radiation, gamma bursts from space, colliding comets, and asteroids -- these catastrophic events have become a common part of our culture. Are natural calamities now more probable, and more frequent? Are things getting worse? Are we part of the problem? If so, what can we do about it?
Award-winning writer Marq de Villiers examines these questions at a time when there is an urgent need to understand the perils that confront us, and to prepare for -- and perhaps prevent -- the disasters when they come. The End is a brilliant and challenging look at what lies ahead, and at what we can do to influence our future.
